Stanley's expedition was the largest African expedition ever, controversial and at the same time the most celebrated Africa expedition of the 19th century, exploring and mapping the central African lakes and rivers. Known for finding the missing missionary and explorer David Livingstone's and credited with dispelling notion that the Lualaba was the source of the Nile. "Sir Henry Rawlinson, president of the Royal Geographic Society, said that it was not Stanley who had discovered Livingstone, but Livingstone who had discovered Stanley; and some of the newspapers threw doubts upon the authenticity of the whole story of the expedition, and found 'something mysterious and inexplicable' in it's leader's narrative."
